Glossary » foot pedal

foot pedal

or “mole” (an underground “mouse”); an input device that is controlled by a person’s foot, useful for entering boolean values (up or down) or values along a continuous range. Foot pedals are common in cars, pianos, and sewing machines. From driving experience, they are generally quite familiar to users. The most likely place you’ll find them in a computer interface is for driving games in a video arcade.
